Some inspirational entries to say the least on here..My humble entry..My favorite and currently only DB suit..posted it on here a couple times.. but never a competition..
Perfect texture juxtaposition, the stripes in the shirt feel like braille
SC Dolce & Gabbana
Perfect coordination of tie and cufflinks - the byproduct of having bought too many pairs of cufflinks and too many ties for too many years . . .
What I like here is the cut of this suit, a bit of drape, strong shoulders with a little rollino, the shape of sandglass. Also, because it's a re-bespoke (not made for me), that I thrift for less than 50 USD, giving a second life to the suit, a second chance.
Since my photographer is not in town there will be no new pictures from me. This is actually one of the very first things I posted in SF. I went through an unfortunate phase many years ago when I imagined that happy socks would be a good idea (somewhat inspired by the fact that the brand "Happy Socks" is actually Swedish and I was living abroad at that time and thought it would be fun to test a new Swedish brand). I still try to work with patterned socks every now and again just to avoid the monotony of the solid blue and grey socks, but I rarely venture in to more ambitious (foolish?) projects. But when I got this vintage YSL tie a while back I thought I should try and do an "overkill" coordination, combining socks, tie, cufflinks and ps in different orange hues. And I do believe that it worked out pretty well. I tried something similar recently with lavender shades but those pictures have been burned...
Go big or go home as I rarely say!
Getting a cravat right is no easy task at the best of times.
Managing to match a cravat not only with one's jacket, but also one's hair, and even with the landscape...that's gotta be next-level.
(from last year)
That is some handsome hair.
Isn't the point of the cravat to cover your neck?
That is his neck; the suit just has an extreme amount of shoulder padding.
Coxsackie is the fit tI beat so far.
